Power of Attorney and Guardianship Solicitors serving Inverness and the Highlands of Scotland
Protecting your family when you need it most
The majority of people will live their lives in complete control. They won’t need help taking care of themselves, making important decisions or doing day-to-day activities.
Unfortunately, there are instances where we may need to turn to others for help. This could be due to ill health, an accident or advanced age. If there is no legal authority in place for specific people to assist with your day-to-day decision making and care, it can be a problem — for both you and your immediate family.
Power of Attorney & Guardianship: What are the Options in Scotland?
If you’re concerned about having the ability to make decisions — for either yourself or a family member — there are three options available:
- Financial Power of Attorney
- Health and Welfare Power of Attorney
Power of Attorney allows you to choose someone that you know and trust to make decisions and act on your behalf. This is usually used in situations where you’re no longer able to do so yourself.
Guardianship means taking full responsibility for someone who is unable to look after themselves.
